The situation is not so easy, it depends on which mtree mode you use (-P
or -L). I'll try to be short. Imagine, say, you have /var/mail linked to
/disk1/mail. To enforce correct permissions on /disk1/mail you need to use
in your /etc/make.conf (or set it in the env. etc). At least in the past
some ports try to change /var/mail permission, so it is real life example.
But, once you use -L, all symlinks in the BSD.*.dist becomes
just directories and mtree will reports mismatch.
